Question Installing Apache and a C Compiler on Solaris 8


I just got Ultra 5 computer an installed Solaris 8 on it. I'm trying to install Apache but I'm having some problems...

I tried to download a precompiled version of apache, but it seems as if I need a c compiler anyway.

When I try to run the configure command I get the following result:

# ./configure
Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.20
+ Warning: Configuring Apache with default settings.
+ This is probably not what you really want.
+ Please read the README.configure and INSTALL files
+ first or at least run './configure --help' for
+ a compact summary of available options.
+ using installation path layout: Apache (config.layout)
Creating Makefile
Creating Configuration.apaci in src
Creating Makefile in src
+ configured for Solaris 280 platform
Error: could not find any of these C compilers
anywhere in your PATH: gcc cc acc c89
Configure terminated

So... I need a c compiler...

I downloaded gcc and tried to install it and got the following error message

# ./configure
Configuring for a sparc-sun-solaris2.8 host.
*** This configuration is not supported in the following subdirectories:
target-libffi target-boehm-gc target-zlib target-libjava
(Any other directories should still work fine.)
Created "Makefile" in /usr/anwi/dl/gcc-3.0 using "mh-frag"
./configure: cc: not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

So... I need a compiler to install my compiler... How do I solve this?

Best regards,

download the precompiled version of gcc and install it w/ pkgadd. this will make the sym link for you and you will then have a working compiler for apache.
